Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!

Dear readers and fellow bloggers,

When I received the message from Sister Saadia Haq about this award, I was doubtful about it.  I’m a new blogger and I’m an English learner. I never think about any awards before. But, I admit it is the third blogger awards that I ever received. Alhamdulillah.

Firstly I have to say my great thankful to Allah The Almighty, because it came from Him. As Allah said in Surah Ibrahim verse:7.download (2)

Now, the time for saying my great thankful to a great blogger ,  an inter-sectional feminist and peace activist Sister Saadia Haq for the Sisterhood of The World Bloggers Award, an award which gives credit and acknowledges deserving women on a global scale! An award that can support each other especially in blogging. Awesome award!

Horrible Airport Experience 10/27/2014

Yesterday I had a very bad experience at the airport .

My day started off good and I was excited and nervous as I was flying alone with a 15 month old went through the line got my boarding pass from the airline I was flying on then went through security and that is were I ran into issues.

The security people were not helpful and I am not fluent in Arabic , and they didn’t speak English so it was very hard the few who claimed to speak English didn’t understand me at all and there is no paging system in the airport what kind of airport doesn’t have a paging system?

The problem is over a piece of paper  apparently I forgot to get a piece of paper from the police department in the town I was staying in because I stayed more than 3 months .

They had me run all over the airport looking for my husband I had several panic attacks and dissolved into tears , They finally found my husband and the issue was almost resolved had to travel back to the town I was staying in to get dumb piece of paper.

My husband he re-booked his flight and left me with his brothers and his Brother in law . Went to claim my bags and guess what they sent one on the airplane so I don’t know if I’ll ever see it ?
I rode in the car back to the town and am now just sitting here waiting.

The Child’s Prayer

The Child’s Prayer

On my lips, appears my heart’s cry as a prayer

like a candle, may I shine, my Lord !

May I help undo the darkness in the world

and may the light within me brighten every place

May I bring dignity to my country

like a flower brings beauty to the garden

May I be in my life, like a night-moth

and revolve in love around the candle of knowledge
May I be dedicated to helping the poor

and may I love the sick and the old

Please, my Lord ! protect me from all evil

and guide my steps on the Right Path

Heat

The heat unbearably is beating down
I feel it sucking away my strenth
I’m helpless to stop it
the heat makes my heart hurt
dizzy and spinning is the room
as I slowly slide into darkness
I hear people say is she ok
what happened
as my head hits the floor
I can feel the heat no more.
